explanation before america decides to strike militarily and, two, should the president get congressional approval? >> yes. i think for sure the president has and needs to do more to address the american people about this and to be very specific -- and i haven't heard a lot of discussion about this. our national security interests are at stake for several reasons. one of the basic reasons is when the iranian regime and hezbollah, two entities, one a terrorist organization, one an actual country, the regime in iran, not only are plotting against us every day and want to bring us harm and we know that for sure, but they've done so in the past, especially in the case of hezbollah. the iranians tried to blow up a restaurant in washington, d.c., that would kill a lot of americans. so i think our national security interests are at stake. i think the president has and will make that clear. but in terms of a long debate in congress, simply to respond to a chemical weapons attack i think would take too long. we should have a long debate, though, an important debate about our larger s
